I have been working at El Camino Hospital

Pros

Great staff, clean and organized, high standards for patient privacy and infection control. The pay is better than most other hospitals in the area, or anywhere really

Cons

Does not take care of staff, they don't care what hardships they put employees through during reorganization, plenty of ways to help displaced workers into other departments but they refuse to let them transfer to open positions. They do not offer growth opportunities to their employees, but will offer positions to external candidates of equal experience and education.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Why pay thousands of dollars into education for your employees and then refuse to allow them to advance their careers within the organization? You need to help out the employees who have proven themselves to be hard working and loyal to the company. You also need to allow current employees who have been laid off to fill positions they are capable of doing, and not fight the processes every step of the way.

    I worked at El Camino Hospital part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people in this hospital are the best people that I have worked with.The hospital is brand new and first class.It provides the best care that for a patient.Great pay and benefits.I have heard that they are the highest paying hospital in the Bay Area. Way above Stanford Hospital and Washington Hospital. Most managers will also allow you to accommodate to get your degree by working out your schedule with them. They also provide training for employees who want to improve their skills at healthcare.

    Cons

    Definitely,there is no perfect workplace in the world. There will be people who are challenging to work with due to either laziness or arrogance. Also,the hospital was severely affected by when it opened a brand new building back in 2008 as it increased its rates and it was the time when economic meltdown occurred. But I think that they were able to bounce back from it considering that it is one of the primary hospitals in the Bay Area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They must try their best to adapt to the changes in the Healthcare systems especially now that Obamacare has been fully implemented.
